Steelers heading to AFC championship game

Rashard Mendenhall scored on third-and-goal from the 2-yard line with 1:39 remaining, breaking a 24-24 tie and giving the Steelers a 31-24 win over the Ravens Saturday at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.


The game-winning score was made possible by a 58-yard pass from Roethlisberger to Antonio Brown on third-and-19.


Baltimore's chance to tie the game in the waning minutes ended when T.J. Houshmandzadeh dropped what would have been a first down pass from quarterback Joe Flacco on fourth-and-18.


Pittsburgh will now play the winner of Sunday's showdown between the Patriots and Jets at Foxboro.


The Ravens jumped out to a 21-7 lead heading into halftime, with Baltimore scoring 21 unanswered points after Mendenhall gave the hosts a 7-0 lead with a one-yard run.


Baltimore answered Mendenhall's TD run with a 14-yard touchdown scamper from Ray Rice, a 13-yard fumble return...

Julien: Kampfer to hospital with broken nose

Rookie defenseman Steve Kampfer was sent to the hospital with a broken nose after being bloodied by teammate Zdeno Chara 57 seconds into the second period. 


"He went to the hospital and has a broken nose," Bruins coach Claude Julien said. "They are just checking him out. We're going to find out more and the severity of it [Sunday]."


Meanwhile, Marc Savard took a header into the far boards in the third period, after a hit from Pittsburgh's Deryk Engelland but after spending about a minute on the ice, he got to his knees and skated off on his own power. "From what I'm told, there was nothing wrong. It was a clean hit," Julien said. "He was off-balance, got his bell rung a little bit but he's alright."

Pens a pain: Cooke with 2 points as B's fall

Jordan Staal scored early in the third period and the Bruins lost defenseman Steve Kampfer to a bloody facial injury as the Bruins fell to the Penguins, 3-2, Saturday afternoon at TD Garden. The Bruins had several chances in front of Marc-Andre Fleury in the final 90 seconds but couldn't net the equalizer. 


The Penguins jumped out to a 2-0 lead on goals by Chris Kunitz in the first and Pascal Dupuis midway through the second. Dennis Seidenberg and Michael Ryder tied it on goals 13 seconds apart at 11:28 and 11:41 of the second. Staal collected a loose puck off the stick of Matt Cooke and put it past Tuukka Rask for the winning goal.


Kampfer — the impressive rookie defenseman who scored the game-winning goal Thursday against the Flyers — was raked across the face by a high stick 57 seconds into the second period when Zdeno Chara and Dupuis got entangled to the right of the Bruins net. He left the game and...

NY's Scott hints at retribution vs. Welker

While his teammate Nick Mangold took to Twitter to get a shot in at Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker and his foot metaphors, Jets linebacker Bart Scott took things one step further, telling Newsday that Welker needs to be “very careful” about what he says about New York coach Rex Ryan.

“I’ll tell you what,” Scott told Newsday. “Be very careful what you say about our coach. [Welker’s] days in a uniform will be numbered. Put it like that.”

Scott’s words come two days after Welker appeared to engage in some good-natured wordplay at the expense of Ryan, using 11 foot metaphors in a roughly eight-minute press conference. Mangold answered with a Friday night Tweet directed at Welker that indirectly hinted at the 2007 Spygate scandal that hit the Patriots.

The Scott statement drew the attention of the league, as NFL spokesman Greg Aiello tweeted on Saturday that the NFL’...

Rask starting, Lucic, Ference out for B's
By: DJ Bean

Bruins coach Claude Julien told reporters prior to Saturday's game against the Penguins that Tuukka Rask will start for the B's. Rask's last start came against the Penguins, as he earned a win in the Bruins' 4-2 come-from-behind victory in Pittsburgh on Monday.


Milan Lucic will miss his third straight game with an undisclosed injury, while Andrew Ference will miss his first game of the season due to an upper-body injury. Ference, who played in the team's first 43 games, left Thursday's 7-5 victory over Philadelphia after the second period. Rookie Matt Bartkowski, who was called up from Providence on an emergency basis Friday, is expected to play in his place. 


Bartkowski made his NHL debut on Monday in Pittsburgh, posting a minus-1 in 9:53 of ice time. He was filling in for Adam McQuaid and was returned to Providence the following day.
